We’ve created a petition to save Guildford’s Hogs Back which can be found at the following link http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/54573.
The petition is hosted on a government website and if we can get 100,000 signatories then hopefully Guildford BC will take note and the threat to the Hogs Back could be debated in parliament.
The petition is addressed to the Department for Communities and Local Government, and calls for a stop to the plans to build a new housing estate on the Hogs Back in Guildford, comprising the building of 2000 new houses on:
- areas of great landscape value.
- areas of outstanding natural beauty.
- high value farmland.
Apart from the loss of beautiful open countryside, we believe that This will create excess competition for school places, increase traffic congestion and put pressure on Guildford’s services. It calls for the government to stop the development of our precious green spaces.
Once you’ve completed your details on the government website, please make sure that you confirm the email from HM Government e-petitions otherwise your signature won’t be counted.
